The Sinnissippi Tuath will provide cow and pig (hamburgers and hotdogs).

Please bring your own non-disposable feast gear – there will be a wash station, but bring plastic bags to take dirties home in, just in case. We will have a limited amount of feast gear available for those who may need it. Please bring extra if you can to help out! Make sure to label your utensils!

This is late July, which can be horribly hot. Plan ahead, have plenty of water, sunscreen, etc.

Since the potluck is a dinner instead of lunch, you should bring something to snack on for lunch time. If your contribution to the meal needs to stay warm, you can drop it at Dun Oengus and we will make sure to get it to the feast. Cold things should be kept in coolers – we will have a couple at the site, but please bring a cooler if you have one. If you don’t have a cooler, please help with ice. If you have any questions please contact Bob at oengus@rockford-druids.org or 815.566.1824
